Hello guys  :classic: ,

In early September, I started the construction of a Star Wars fig, a droideka.

My first try:

Recently, I updated my fig, and remake the legs and body of the droid.

:oh3: Perfect! Just perfect! :thumbup:

I notice it doesn't have those two side panels (shield generators, I think), so I assume it isn't a shielded version. :wink:

Perfectly to scale with great colours and details.
Very well done, Bossk.  :sweet:

Wow, that's a great UCS-sort of MOC! I love the detail!

You got my hopes up this was finally a good minifig solution! :cry_sad:

But this is pretty awesome! If only you could shrink it down and give it to me!

Very very true to the movie.  It looks fantastic.

my only question is does it curl up into a ball?

If it would curl up into a ball, this moc would be perfect.
But its an amazing moc nonetheless.  :thumbup:

This is just brilliant! You have everything scaled perfectly and it just looks awesome. Nice work, is this your first MOc on Eurobricks?

Looks amazing!

I do wonder though, is the main body support just using a single ball joint?

Much better than the other one, with a better disc and arms.

As ADHO said, "Perfect! Just Perfect!"

Defi, it is supported by a singe ball joint (looks like it) but since it is folded up onto itself, it is very stable, or should be if experience has taught me anything!

Great work!

This is brilliant work. You have made it look exactly like the real thing, all the colours are perfect and the piece selection is just right.

Incredible. Very well done. :thumbup: :thumbup:

That is one very good Droideka you made Bossk!
Very movie accurate, and good details as well.

Judging by the Head being held in by Technic, the arms being held in by clicky-hinges, and the legs being able to come off, (And possibly put upside down) I'd say it can. :thumbup:

EDIT: I've created a pic shoing the places where it can fold up, thus proving it turns into a ball.

You are right, that because I didn't knew how make these panels, which parts did I should use?  :look:

When I decided to build this droid, I haven't thought about the idea of making it curl up into a ball  :sceptic:
At first, it was destined to be a simple figurine like the Lego model.
So I'll see if I can change a few things to make it possible to curl up into a ball  :wink:  .

I took some pictures to show you everything that can move/rotate:

The "neck" is made with Technic arm and plates, that why it can't curl up into a ball.

the legs can also fold up  :classic:
